There are no other dance moves on this planet that are more imitated than Michael Jackson’s. From the moon walk to the infamous crotch grab, the whole world wishes they could dance like the King of Pop. Well guess what now you can (well at you can try). A new video game in the works featuring Michael Jackson will use technology that allows users to get their full King of Pop on. Introducing Michael Jackson the game.
“Your goal is to dance like Michael,” said Tony Key, marketing vice president for game developer Ubisoft. “Do what the guy on the screen is doing and you’re there. It’ll score you based on the quality of your performance.”
Ubisoft announced Monday that the as-yet-unnamed game will be among the first to use Kinect and Move, the respective motion-detecting camera systems for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony’s PlayStation 3 due out this holiday season.
The game is expected to launch around the same time as the November debut of a new album containing unreleased Jackson recordings. Versions of the game, which will feature songs from Jackson’s catalog, including “Billie Jean” and “Beat It,” will also be available for Nintendo’s Wii and the Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable handheld consoles. Who’s ready to moonwalk?
